Yes, it produces no output. The reason seems to be:
stat -c %G /dev/$device
++ stat -c %G /dev/sda
+ '[' floppy = disk ']'
+ '[' 0 -eq 1 ']'
+ read major minor blocks device suffix
So disk-info tests if the group of /dev/sda is disk -- and in my case it is:
# ls -al /dev/sda
brw-rw---- 1 root floppy 8, 0 May 15 10:36 /dev/sda
So I have two questions:
Why is the group "floppy"? (I probably should take a deep look myself,
should be related to udev ...)
Why uses /usr/lib/fai/disk-info / setup-storage this test?
